"QGIS is a standalone geographical information system -- that is, an application for viewing, analyzing and editing geospatial data. This video course shows how to leverage QGIS as a tool for developing geospatial applications using Python. Geospatial applications are often very complicated; using QGIS, you can avoid a lot of this complexity by developing at a higher level, making use of many of the tools for viewing, analyzing and editing geospatial data that are provided by the QGIS system. Using these tools, you can build more sophisticated geospatial applications with less time and effort."--Resource description page.

Master data management, visualization, and spatial analysis techniques in QGIS and become a GIS power user About This Book Learn how to work with various types of data and create beautiful maps using this easy-to-follow guide Give a touch of professionalism to your maps, both for functionality and look and feel, with the help of this practical guide This progressive, hands-on guide builds on a geo-spatial data and adds more reactive maps using geometry tools. Who This Book Is For If you are a user, developer, or consultant and want to know how to use QGIS to achieve the results you are used to from other types of GIS, then this learning path is for you. You are expected to be comfortable with core GIS concepts. This Learning Path will make you an expert with QGIS by showing you how to develop more complex, layered map applications. It will launch you to the next level of GIS users. What You Will Learn Create your first map by styling both vector and raster layers from different data sources Use parameters such as precipitation, relative humidity, and temperature to predict the vulnerability of fields and crops to mildew Re-project vector and raster data and see how to convert between different style formats Use a mix of web services to provide a collaborative data system Use raster analysis and a model automation tool to model the physical conditions for hydrological analysis Get the most out of the cartographic tools to in QGIS to reveal the advanced tips and tricks of cartography In Detail The first module Learning QGIS, Third edition covers the installation and configuration of QGIS. You'll become a master in data creation and editing, and creating great maps. By the end of this module, you'll be able to extend QGIS with Python, getting in-depth with developing custom tools for the Processing Toolbox. The second module QGIS Blueprints gives you an overview of the application types and the technical aspects along with few examples from the digital humanities. After estimating unknown values using interpolation methods and demonstrating visualization and analytical techniques, the module ends by creating an editable and data-rich map for the discovery of community information. The third module QGIS 2 Cookbook covers data input and output with special instructions for trickier formats. Later, we dive into exploring data, data management, and preprocessing steps to cut your data to just the important areas. At the end of this module, you will dive into the methods for analyzing routes and networks, and learn how to take QGIS beyond the out-of-the-box features with plug-ins, customization, and add-on tools. This Learning Path combines some of the best that Packt has to offer in one complete, curated package. It includes content from the following Packt products: Learning QGIS, Third Edition by Anita Graser QGIS Blueprints by Ben Mearns QGIS 2 Cookbook by Alex Mandel, Victor Olaya Ferrero, Anita Graser, Alexander Bruy Style and approach This Learning Path will get you up and running with QGIS. We start off with an introduction to QGIS and create maps and plugins. Then, we will guide you through Blueprints for geographic web applications, each of which will teach you a different feature by boiling down a complex workflow into steps you can follow. Finally, you'll turn your attention to becoming a QGIS power user and master data management, visualization, and spatial analysis techniques of QGIS.

An Introduction to Using GIS in Marine Biology

An Introduction to Using GIS in Marine Biology

Therefore, this book will be of most interest to those who have already read 'An Introduction To Using GIS In Marine Biology'. This supplementary workbook contains five exercises covering the practical use of GIS in marine biology.

This book is the seventh companion volume to 'An Introduction To Using GIS In Marine Biology'. It is designed to augment the information on using GIS in marine biology provided in that book, and, indeed, to be used alongside it rather than to be used independently as a stand-alone volume. Therefore, this book will be of most interest to those who have already read 'An Introduction To Using GIS In Marine Biology'. This supplementary workbook contains five exercises covering the practical use of GIS in marine biology. These exercises aim to introduce marine biologists to using QGIS (or Quantum GIS), a freely-available, open-source GIS software package, and range from making a simple map of the locations where a species was recorded for inclusion in a publication, or presentation to creating grids of species presence-absence, richness and abundance, and grids of environmental variables. The exercises are designed to be followed in the order they are presented, and work with a specific data set which can be downloaded separately for free. Working through these five exercises will help the novice GIS user obtain experience in working with GIS and so develop their GIS skills. Unlike most other GIS tutorials, this information is specifically presented in a marine biological context and all the exercises use real data from a marine biological study. Therefore, these exercises are more likely to provide the kind of experience in using GIS that marine biologists will find useful and applicable to their own research. These exercises are presented in the same easy-to-follow flow diagram-based format first introduced in the 'How To...' section of 'An Introduction To Using GIS In Marine Biology'. They are accompanied by images which show the user how their GIS project should look as they progress through the exercises, allowing them to compare their own work to the expected results. This is part of the PSLS series of books which use Task-Oriented Learning (TOL) to teach the practical application of research skills to the life sciences. This involves demonstrating how these skills can be used in the specific circumstances in which they are likely to be required rather than concentrating on teaching theoretical frameworks or on teaching skills in a generic or abstract manner. By seeing how the similar processes are used to achieve a variety of different goals within a specific field, it becomes easier for the reader to identify the general rules behind the practical application of these processes and, therefore, to transfer them to novel situations they may encounter in the future.

These four volumes present innovative thematic applications implemented using the open source software QGIS. These are applications that use remote sensing over continental surfaces. The volumes detail applications of remote sensing over continental surfaces, with a first one discussing applications for agriculture. A second one presents applications for forest, a third presents applications for the continental hydrology, and finally the last volume details applications for environment and risk issues.
